Renato Archer’s Information Technology Center (CTI)
Innovation and scientific rigor drive Renato Archer researchers’ every step. Renato Archer’s Information Technology Center (CTI) answers to Brazil’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. Located in Campinas, São Paulo, CTI comprises 12 technological divisions, including the three-dimensional technologies division (DT3D). Its 35 researchers explore 3D technology both onscreen and physically, using 3D printers and other rapid prototyping equipment.
Jorge Vicente Lopes da Silva and Peter Yoshito Noritomi of Renato Archer used both FDM and PolyJet 3D printers to develop medical applications.
“We needed highly accurate, multi-material 3D printers; the Fortus adapts well to industrial applications and the Connex is useful in medical applications.”
